This date has been commercially released on "Winterland 1973: The Complete Recordings"
Subject: Winterland '73
A great boxed set to own, if you're into buying official releases. It does sound beautiful, I must say -
Highlights from this night: That exquisite Playin', EYES all over the place in the 2nd set, and a note-perfect China Doll. Bobby's Weather Report Suite is, as usual, evocative.

Subject: downloadable SBD
did this one slip through or what? as of this writing this is still a downloadable board.... the first night of an historically KILLER RUN at winterland -- this is the stuff that solidified the legend that WAS/IS The Grateful Dead.
a solid 4-4.5 star show, when compared with the next two nights, both BONAFIED 5 STAR KILLERS.

Subject: Jerry and Phil...
...are both in excellent form this night, and the rest of the band play at the same level. While there is no "uber-jam" at this show, it is beautifully played and a joy to listen to. Playin is crazy, and the WRS>Eyes is splendid. The cassette generation in this download does fuzzy the sound a bit, but do not let that deter you in the least!

This is a great show filled with really wonderful music.... This Eyes and Let it Grow are unspeakably good and deserve special mention. This is a rocking show and the sound is not all that bad. This is very similiar to 2/22 U of Illinois which is a personal favorite from the year as well as Kiel Auditorium on 10/30 also a killer.
Subject: Performance vs. Recording
I have a cassette of the 2nd set of 11/9. The sound is somewhat better than here - recorded from the radio-WBAI 99.5FM in NYC "Morning Dew" Show. The sound is still not as good as the 11/11 show, but I find more energy and fster tempos on 11/9 songs. I'm going to keep the cassette of 11/9 and burn to CD 11/11- the best of both worlds? Hard to beat those Winterland shows! I give this one 5* for performance, 3* for recording - average of 4*
11/9 and 11/10 are not presented in the sound quality that 11/11 is. I'm not saying 11/11's performance doesn't deserve its accolades, but it's unfair to compare it to 9 and 10 because the premium sound makes it a far more enjoyable listening experience.
This whole period of late '73 is fantastic. It's an extension of '74. You want more '74? Well, start plumbing the depths of late '73.

Heading for our favorite seats, this was the song we were hearing. Apparently the band had started more than a half hour early. Good omen or what?
Subject: Fine, Fine, Fine Connection
Last night at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles I saw Dark Star Orchestra for the very first time. From the set up of only one drummer through the opener of Promised Land, an upbeat They Love Each Other and finally the clincher, a rare Here Comes Sunshine, I knew we were in 1973 all over again. Except I wasn't there the first time. So this was great and I have to admit a very close second. No one else does what this band does, whether I'm referring to the Grateful Dead or DSO. The energy here is great, the sound is great, the quality of music is outstanding. Burn this concert. And also go see DSO whenever the opportunity arises.
Subject: Good Run of Shows
Don't miss this. The two shows following get all the press, but this is a definite winner. The stars and planets were all in line for these three days. Quality is good. Show is shorter, but still great.
